Don't get me wrong. They are a good store and I have used them too especially when I was in college. They are good for electronic parts, tools, and instruments for building projects or specialty items like security camera's.
However, they are overpriced especially when it comes to basic everyday electronic items. This is why they don't quote prices over the phone or list them on the web.
The BC246T was listed for $40 more than on-line stores. I remember A & W was one of the best places to go for scanners but they are not around anymore.
